Too much at….. too early

No, I am not your alarm clock, I’m better… well, not really, but I’m trying be. Okay look, I know Mondays are like the last donut in the box that nobody wants to touch because everyone has touched it at least once aaand… its gross. But suck it up, put your big girl/boy panties on (all styles accepted), twirl/shake it through a mist of your favorite perfume/cologne, slip into your favorite ‘I feel goood… shoot, I look good too!‘ outfit and play your favorite album on your way to work & sing at the top of your lungs. Yup. Even if you take: Trax/the bus/your bike/rollerblades/wings/disco-make-you-fly-sneaks. Just sing baby! And have a fantastic day to ring in the new week!

I’m trying to offer a blog that everyone can benefit from. I know that has not always been the case (my apologies) Here are a few things to browse while you enjoy your breakfast of champions AKA the last donut. Don’t worry……. I won’t tell anyone, as long as you wipe that scowl off your face & smile before your boss gets in.

All my annoying-ly happy-thoughts-at….too-early, Bee

Girlscout Controversy

I don’t have the time, energy, nor desire to go into depth on this mind blowing video. All I have to say is this brizzle will be buying triple the girl scout cookies this year (not just because I want them ALL to myself…). We all pull our panties on one leg at a time, alright? If a little boy with lipgloss came to my front door and asked if I’d like some cookies I’d swoop him up in my arms and tell him to always stay true to himself. And then buy plenty of boxes for myself, family, and friends. Respect all walks of life…

Thank you

Please follow these links 1/2/3 to video responses to this video. I believe they do a beautiful job in covering both sides of the story, and can hopefully open many peoples eyes. However, these also made me cry… So if you are a softy like me then prepare to have snot all over your nose and red eyeballs. Just being honest my loves. XOXO

Pretending You’re Still 8

Last night I was able to spend some time with my phenomenal cousin, Bridger Dean. He and I have grown up together. We’re four years apart & share some really amazing memories. Being an only child I’ve never known what it’s like to have siblings but Bridger is the closest thing to a little brother I’ve ever had. We have had a very special bond from day one. Families have issues and sometimes it creates distance and that has unfortunately been the case with he and I for the past year, so last night was really special for us. He’s playing for the Skyline baseball team and maintaining a 4.o GPA – I can’t count how many times I said, “I’m so proud of you” last night. He has always amazed me and in so many different ways…. Surviving Meningitis as a newborn and losing his hearing in one ear because of it was just the beginning. He strives for excellence in the class room as well as on the field (or in the pool, or on the court…). There hasn’t ever been anything that has kept him from achieving his goals. Not only is he a brilliant young man but he also has a heart of gold & can make anyone smile even in the hardest times. I love him so much and admire him for his outstanding wisdom at such a young age. I like to pretend he’s still eight years old but he’ll be turning 16 this September and that scares the bejesus out of me. He’s my little baby, since when can he drive a vehicle!!! He’s size 13 in shoes and has the biggest hands in his school, the day I’ve dreaded for years now has come and gone – He has outgrown me. I can’t pick him up and twirl him around, try and be the boss of him, or tickle him until he pees.

We went bowling last night and had an awesome time together. He got 6 strikes in a row, naturally. I got 3. That’s how it’s always been, he has shown me up for years now. I love it because he makes me eager to go on new adventures and learn new things. I watch him do flips off the diving board and I’m too scared to even jump off of it, but it’s always fun. He’s a sweetheart and I really cherish our relationship. After bowling we decided to surprise my mum and show up at her house (she hasn’t seen Bridger in months either). She saw him and had instant tears of joy. We caught up and laughed about old memories while we made some new ones. Even though the last year has been really hard it brings me peace to know that at the end of the day I still have my beautiful family…I love you Bridger Dean. Shine on honey

Surreal

This is absolutely beautiful. These kind of things make me so happy. Can you even begin to imagine what his experiences are like with these gorgeous animals? I would love to be able to do this. Props to the sweet Summer who shared this on facebook – Thank you lovey!! XOXO

Pac

A 4 part interview with Tupac at the age of 17 in 1988…

1/2/3/4

“A lot of people, black white mexican young or old fat or skinny, have a problem being true to themselves, they have a problem looking in the mirror and looking directly into their own souls, reason I am who I am today is because I can look directly into the mirror and find my soul”

“I set goals, take control, drink out my own bottle. I make mistakes, but learn from every one . And when it’s said and done, I bet this brother be a better one.”

Winston & I are snuggling in bed while we educate ourselves on our boy Pac. In my opinion he was much more than a rapper. He had many beautiful visions and spoke the truth like it was his mission. We need more honest and intelligent rappers like him today. I could watch these videos & read the things that came to be because of him (lyrics to interviews) for hours. Win & I may or may not be up way past our bed time tonight…. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. Lots of smooches from B&W, XOXO
